Natural gas is one of the world`s most important sources of energy.
Today approximately 30% of the world`s energy demand is derived from natural gas. The majority of natural gas is delivered by pipeline in gaseous form.
Liquefied natural gas is an odorless, colorless, non-toxic, non-corrosive and non-flammable form of methane. As fuels go, it`s pretty cool.
LNG touches only a small portion of the world`s gas supply, but it`s the fastest-growing portion.
Since 2000, global demand for LNG has grown 140 percent and now accounts for roughly 10 percent of the methane consumed worldwide. The rest moves to market by pipeline.
Natural gas and LNG in particular is expected to play an essential role in the world’s transition to cleaner sources of energy.
